Sumfin new, not good

Mommy's at it 'gain. She's gonna take ofur my doggy bloggy thingy with a new dum craft she tried. She wants ta show yur moms.
Ok, so she's gone toadal nutzo ofur this wool feltin stuff. There's anuther kind of feltin called Needle Feltin. She found a video of sumone makin a needle felted Mini Schnauzer. Ya shoulda heard her Squeeein ofur that! Disgustin.

So here goes with a short piccie show an tell of how it went when she tried out Needle feltin.


This stuff is called wool roving. It is wool (frum sheeps) that's been cleaned and combed and sum of it's been dyed. At this point, if ya knew what ya was doin, ya could make yur own yarn. But that's not the deal right now.
The pack of special felting needles are in the middle of the pic. That is jus 'bout all ya need.
 Fizzy, this here craft involves Very sharp needles. Jus' sayin. Ya know?




This is gonna be the Schnauzie's head. There's the Very sharp needle she's been using. She rolled up sum of that rovin ya see back there an stabbed and stabbed it until it got smaller and firm. Stab, stab, stab. Watch those fingers!


This shows the Schnauzie head, snout and lil black nose. I came ofur and sat unner the kitchen table. I thought maybe I'd get sumfin to eat if she dropped sumfin or maybe she was makin me a toy.
I nefur got nuthin. The whole deal was axfurly purdy borin. Took her a Long time to do all that stabbin.


This is gonna be the body. There's the head with it's beard. Needs to have sum plastic eyes glued on.

Hold yur moms back now. I'm gonna show ya the finished deal.




Now 'member, this is Mommy's first time efur tryin this needle feltin deal. The lil pup's proportions are kinda off. And he's kinda messy. Like my hairs get mos' of the time.
She tried to get sum fancy long eyelashes, like I have. And check out the lil nub of a tail!

Here's anuther shot. He's a lil guy, fits in the palm of Mommy's hand.







I think I oughta get to play with him. Mommy says No Way.

  2. OMD!! Mrs. Zoe, that's adorable!!! BOL, Momma was saying "Oh, I've been wanting to try needle felting for a while!" and then she got to the part where you warned me about the Very sharp needles and just started to laugh and laugh. *sigh* I hope she doesn't go to that Michael's place and buy this stuff...

  4. Thanks Pals! But please, don't encourage Mommy. She needs to take up bakin to make me cookies.

    And Mommy says to tell your Momma, Fizzy, the needles are Very sharp. She can tell ya why she knows that. At least there was no blood involved.

    1. Maybe your Mommy can bake you schnauzer cookies and put some pictures on your page?? If she doesn't have a schnauzer cookie cutter I bet you can find one on the Internet thingy.

  11. Sheesh, my mom squeed a bit when she saw the needle-felted Zoe. She says she wanted to get those done of me and Shakey, but she never got around to ordering them, and she's not gonna learn to do it herself cause of the sharp things.

  12. OMC, dat ish the mostest catastic cat toy I hash eFUR seen - I can't help thinkin dat way, since I ish a cat MOL! Yer Mom dids a great job wif that - she could be makin' a shmall FURtune if she efur wanted to make cat toys - dun lets Georgie cat see dat, or it'sh gonna get stolen and swatted around, fur sure. Seein' all dat yarn makes me want to take a nap innit, but it'sh PURRably dah same thing at yer house dat it ish here - no deal. We gots lotsa dat sthuff at our house, but no deal on nappin' innit - hoomans can be so selfish about dere stuff sometimes.......
